Matthew 10:29

Post by Thoth » Wed Jul 18, 2018 9:50 am

Just feeling odd and introspective with this verse in mind because I saw a sparrow crash dead to the ground in front of me as I was walking to entrance at work. My mind just wants to keep reading more into it than what it is.

I think it is very good you brought this up. The CPS community at large has had a great deal of loss this year. Not one sparrow falls without the Father. Without Him seeing and remembering it.

One may derive a ton of comfort from those words of Jesus.

I thought of this too once when a bird hit my vehicle at 70mph leaving a huge grease stain upon my window.

I've been thinking more about the contrast of Thoth's heart vs mine. He immediately went spiritual and my cynical nature took me to weapons of mass destruction, wondering why the bird died in the air.

It did make me go review the passage, though, and I'm grateful for that.

There’s something a little “off” with you people.
